Public schools are the foundation of every community in our district. Private schools may do wonderful things for those who can afford them. But we must not drain resources and diminish funds for our public schools, which are for the education of all of our children, in order to give tax breaks to the wealthiest for a private education. We must have secure funding for our schools, which offer our children the promise of the future.
I will work hard to guard funding for our public schools so that every child has a better chance to excel.
